Cameras: The cameras are in and out facing. If the truck is turned off completely, the cameras on the inside are off. The outward facing ones would remain on.  If the truck is running but not moving, the inward facing camera is still on.  BUT, if a driver wants to hang his hat on it, we can’t stop them from doing that, if they are more comfortable with that.
